SCHOLAR. GENTLEMAN. TEACHER AND 
FRIEND OF THE STUDENTS, THIS VOLUME 
OF THE FABRICATOR IS RESPECTFULLY 
DEDICATED WITH THE ESTEEM AND AD- 
MIRATION OF THE CLASS OF NINETEEN 
HUNDRED AND TWENTY-SEVEN. 




HISTORY OF THE SCHOOL 



THE NEW BEDFORD TEXTILE SCHOOL was founded in 1895 under 
a special act of State Legislature and the first building was erected and 
equipped from appropriations made by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts 
and the City of New Bedford. Its object was to give instruction along lines 
that would be of material benefit to young men who wished to follow cotton 
manufacturing as a business. The school was incorporated by a group of 
interested men who later became the Board of Trustees, and Professor C. P. 
Brooks, the founder of the Lowell Textile School, was appointed director. 

In 1899, the building which now contains the office and picking rooms 
was constructed. The enrollment steadily increased until three years later an 
addition was made. Again, in 1905, the remainder of the building was in- 
creased to what at present stands south of the alleyway. In 1911, it was 
decided to erect a recitation and chemistry building on a lot of land north of 
the structure. At this time, the old building was turned over entirely to 
machinery. 

The school flourished until 1917 when so many left school to enlist. 
After the war, the government provided means so that the veterans could attend 
the school and enrollment gradually increased again. In 1922, the State Legis- 
lature made an appropriation so that an addition could be made to the weaving 
and spinning departments and a gymnasium could be built in the upper floor. 




FOREWORD OF STAFF 

WE, THE STAFF OF THE YEAR BOOK OF 
1927, HAVE ENDEAVORED TO DEPICT TO THE READERS, THE 
SOCIAL, SCHOLASTIC AND ATHLETIC LIFE OF THE SCHOOL. 
WE WISH TO THANK THOSE WHO SO KINDLY CONTRIBUTED 
TO THIS VOLUME AND THEY MAY FEEL SURE THAT THEIR 
EFFORTS ARE GREATLY APPRECIATED. 



AN ANNUAL IS ESSENTIALLY A VOLUME 
OF WORK AND WE SINCERELY HOPE THAT THE ENSUING 
CLASSES WILL REALIZE THIS FACT AND BEGIN EARLY. 




William Smith 
Headmaster 



MR. SMITH 

WITHOUT EXAGGERATION, WE SAY THAT 
MR. SMITH'S ACCOMPLISHMENTS ARE UN- 
LIMITED. AS TIME PASSES ONE CAN EASILY 
SEE THE ENLARGEMENT OF THE SCHOOL, 
FROM YEAR TO YEAR. 

WITH CHARACTERISTIC ENERGY HE HAS 
TAKEN A WHOLE HEARTED INTEREST IN ALL 
OUR STUDENT AFFAIRS. 

AS STUDENTS, WE THE CLASS OF 1927 REC- 
OGNIZE HIS EXCEPTIONAL ABILITY AS HEAD- 
MASTER, AND HIS FAIRNESS TO THE STUD- 
ENTS OF THE NEW BEDFORD TEXTILE 
SCHOOL.

WEAVING AND DESIGNING DEPARTMENT 

THE Weaving and Designing Department of the school trains the students 
to fill positions as designers or weaving executives. In the design room, 
courses are offered in designing, cloth analysis and color. Fabrics of every design 
and nature are carefully studied and analyzed. Slashing, spooling and warping 
are taught in the warp preparation room, every class having the opportunity 
of making a warp for a loom. During his three years at school the student 
learns to assemble and operate every kind of loom. 

Samuel Holt, who has been with the school since its origin, is head of this 
department. Through his perseverance, hard work and untiring patience, many 
good designers have been produced. The weave room, which is second to none, 
is in charge of Mr. Acomb. His able assistants, Mr. Moore and Mr. Beards- 
worth, have had much experience and are always on hand to help the perplexed 
student. 

Through the generosity of the Philadelphia Heddle Company, Knowles 
Reed Works and many other companies, the weave room is kept up to date. 
Crompton and Knowles and Draper looms were added recently.

MECHANICAL DEPARTMENT 

T* HE Mechanical Department of the New Bedford Textile School trains the 
■*■ students to fill positions in machine shops, electrical shops and in drafting 
and engineering offices. 

Mr. Crompton is head instructor and confines himself to the theoretical 
side of the department. Mr. Walton and Mr. Bayreuther, assistants, handle 
the practical side in a most efficient manner. 

Besides the student work, this department has been able to give valuable 
assistance to the different departments through their well equipped machine 
shop, electrical laboratory and seemingly unlimited blueprints.

CHEMISTRY, DYEING AND FINISHING DEPT. 

rrt HE Chemistry, Dyeing and Finishing Department gives instructions in 
■*■ Organic and Inorganic Chemistry Qualitative and Quantitative Analysis, 
Textile Chemistry, Dyeing and Converting. The head of the chemistry staff 
is Fred E. Busby, B. S., and the assistants are Abram Brooks, Organic and 
Quantitative Analysis; Robert I. Brickley, Textile Chemistry and Dyeing; and 
Frank Weymouth, A. B. 

The object of the courses in this department is to give the student a 
thorough knowledge of the chemistry of textile processes, both dyeing and 
finishing of fibres and fabrics and the manufacture and analysis of the various 
chemicals used in textile plants. Besides two chemical and dyeing laboratories, 
this department has a converting room, a printing laboratory and an analytical 
balance room. The stockroom contains an adequate supply of apparatus for 
experimental work and a large stock of dyes is always on hand for the student 
to use. 

The graduates of this course find employment in dyehouses, print shops, 
chemical laboratories, bleacheries and dyestuff manufacturing plants.

THE COTTON YARN PREPARATION DEPT. 

'T-'HE Cotton Yarn Preparation Department of the school is considered the 
■*■ most important department of all in the eyes of the students. In this 
department the foundation of the entire business rests: namely, the making 
of cotton yarn for weaving and knitting purposes. 

During the past two years there have been several additions to the machin- 
ery list. Among these are a Roller and Clearer Card especially adapted for 
waste cotton and a new air system for the pickers. A new steam oven has also 
been installed in the testing laboratory for determining moisture contents of 
yarns. 

This department is headed by Mr. Taft who is assisted by Mr. Holden and 
Mr. Woolam. These three instructors have always been willing to give the 
student help which their experience qualifies them for.

KNITTING DEPARTMENT 

ONE of the most important and progressive departments in the school is the 
Knitting Department. During the past two years this branch of the 
textile industry has made great strides in the winding and knitting of Rayon. 
All such information can be found in the Knitting Department. 

The work has been greatly advanced by donations of machinery from the 
Hemphill Co., Fidelity Machine Co., American Moistening Co., Dupont Rayon 
Co. and the Crawford Mfg. Co. 

This department is indeed fortunate in having at its head, Mr. Manning, 
whose knowledge of knitting and textiles in general is unlimited. Mr. Manning 
has worked wonders with this department in the last four years and it was 
through him that much of the new machinery was obtained. 

During the past year a large testing room has been fully equipped and the 
running conditions of all the different textile fabrics have been carefully studied 
bv Mr. Smith and Mr. Manning.

HISTORY OF THE CLASS OF 1927 

IN early September, 1924, the members of the class of '27 met, for the first 
time, outside the portals of that world known institution, the New Bedford 
Textile School. We had no idea of the cares, the joys and the friendships 
which were to come during the next three years. 

We freshmen gathered in groups outside the school and admired the very 
collegiate upper classmen as they greeted their fraternity brothers and friends 
after the summer vacation. When the bell rang we went inside and were herded 
into the library where one of the office girls quickly straightened us out as to 
where we should go and what we should do. Then we were turned over to 
the instructors, each of whom insisted that we spend more money in his depart- 
ment than in any other. We had to get instruction sheets from every instructor 
besides pick glasses, drawing sets, analysis books etc. Later, when we compared 
notes with our chemistry comrades, we found that they had also suffered 
financial reverses. 

The first few weeks were spent in getting acquainted with our school- 
mates, instructors and with our school work. As few of us in the general class 
had ever been inside of a cotton mill, this time was well spent in teaching us 
the fundamental principles involved in the manufacture of cotton cloth. 

In the fall of '25, we came back from the fields, forests, mountains and 
mills for another attack on education. Our class was very unfortunate for some 
reason or other for only half the members of the original class returned to 
school. Bill Plunkett, Bob Desmond, Rollin McHugh and Red Mercer had 
had enough theory and were climbing the ladder of success in the textile world.

During the second year the evils of double cloths and steam engineering 
presented themselves and we had to study harder than we had ever had to before 
to overcome them. The rest of the subjects were passed without any extra 
exertion so on the whole, we had a very pleasant term. We felt so much at 
home in the school that we started to call the instructors by their first names. 

Our class was well represented in athletics, Casey Searls being the hero on 
the diamond while the honors on the basketball floor were divided between Bruce 
and Levovsky. Nearly all of us belonged to either one or the other of the two 
large fraternities by this time and there was much good natured rivalry carried 
on. Interfraternity bowling matches, bridge games and pool games were held, 
with honors about even. 

In October, 1925 we lost our classmate Wilfred Touchette who was 
fatally injured in an automobile accident. 

Then came our third year and we began to realize that soon we would 
leave school and face the world so we studied harder and more faithfully. It 
took us two years to appreciate what a wonderful course the school was offering 
to us. In electricity we learned that ohms are much more to be feared than 
volts and we doubtlessly 'shocked' Mr. Walton more than once with some of 
our brilliant answers. In the last half of our third year we were staunch 
followers of that great indoor sport, "Wet Wash." This was our only relaxation 
from the "weare and teare" on the brain induced by C. Y. P., Weaving, Design- 
ing, Mill Engineering, etc. 

Soon each of us will take our separate path to success and, believe me, 
some of the class of '27 will eventually become leaders in the textile industry.

Tommy with a plug of tobacco in one hand and a box of "Tools" in the other. 

The tools will aid him as Dan's playmate and understudy; the tobacco 
— the less said the better. 

Tom has endeavored for the past three years to revise the courses of in- 
struction at N. B. T. S. but so far has met with little success. 

As a mathematican we have in Tommy a marvel of the age. He is at 
present working on a new table of electrical areas, namely "VOLTS PER 
SQUARE INCH." 

His ambition is to be agent of some New Bedford mill and turn out a 
superior grade of yarn. 

Although not an athlete, Tom has always been an ardent supporter of 
Athletics. 

His strong point in school activities is dancing and his delight is to serve 
on dancing committees. 

Tommy in his own inimitable way will undoubtedly achieve success in 
our world of Textiles and some day make a name for himself.

HE answer to the fifth place is spot, 
zero, naught, nothing, circle, cipher," spoke up the mental gymnast from 
across the river. Thus we first learned that Bill was not to be classed as one 
of those gentlemen that Barnum claims was born every sixty seconds. 

Bill's favorite pastimes consist of looking to see if by chance he has re- 
ceived any mail, of trying to get the correct pronunciation of long Q and of 
thinking up excuses for being late. We gather that the bridge is open once 
each morning for every setting on an old Hielman comber. 

Bill is noted for his peculiar sense of humor and his fighting spirit. Be it 
on the basketball floor or classroom, he always comes out of the melee with half 
a dozen baskets or a 98%. 

When Bill graduates, the Textile industry will flourish, even tho' babies 
are born with a complete outfit on; for Bill has all the qualifications that 
assure success in the Textile business.

better" games. This rugged lad who went through High School practically 
unknown to the athletic world, blossomed late but grew with startling rapidity 
when once transplanted to the fertile field of the Textile School Campus. The 
result was the production of one of the best athletes that Textile has had dur- 
ing the last two years. Athletics have played a great part in this lad's career; a 
foul ball was the instrument of fate which caused a pall of darkness to fall 
upon a certain young lady — so she called George her Knight. 

It would not surprise us in the least to hear within a few months of 
Hiram's departure for greater things, that the wheels of fate had revolved once 
more and cupid had initiated one more couple into the Temple of Love. 

Eventually — Why not now, George?

• EVERAL summers ago this curly 
headed youth, after finishing a college course at Rhode Island State College, 
thought that life on a farm was too hard. So he cranked up his high powered 
fliver and left the quiet and peaceful town of Central Falls to come to the 
wicked city of hills, mills, stills and bills, to attend our dear institution. 

Right away he started to learn all the lessons that would make any person 
a first class mill man. "Ev" is a hound "for night work. The nights he is not 
at school he may be seen somewhere between the wilds of the North End and 
Clinton Street, in the wee small hours of the morning, either walking or riding 
with some kind-hearted milkman and whistling that famous masterpiece of 
Irving Berlin's, "Because I Love You." 

But seriously, Everett is a hard worker and puts his mind on his lessons, 
especially designing and weaving. We feel confident that if he is as loyal to his 
work in the mill as he has been to his books and lessons in school, he will be a 
successful mill man.

HINK of the Razzers!" Mac is surely 
the boy for that. If there is anybody you want "razzed," get Mac to do it; 
it's sure to be properly done if his shadow chimes in. His shadow is known 
around the "Lab" as "Husky" Ed Waring. 

Somehow or other Tom always managed to pass his mid-year and final 
exams, even tho' he was out, doing his "stuff," as he calls it, with one of his 
many friends. Besides being handy with his chemical apparatus, he surely 
knew his stuff when it came to changing piston rings on his FORD. 

"Mac" must be mentional honorably as our class president. He has done 
good work as our leader and also as our "AD" manager. He would not 
accept the negative as an answer from any of the country's Textile Works in 
regard to any advertisements. In case the Chemical end of the Textile industry 
does not suit your fancy, Tom, we would like to suggest opening an advertising 
agency for your future, as you sure have the ability to collect "ADS." 

Well, Tom, here's hoping that your ship "SUCCESS" comes sailing in 
rapidly once you start your life's career.

OBLE! What! Straight as an arrow 
and every inch a soldier. Dinty has always endeavored to keep the class in 
good spirits by his wit and humor. In fact, someone once made the remark that 
he was NO FOOL. We repeat that with emphasis. 

Carroll may not look very angelic but he is really a quiet, unobtrusive 
youth whose idea of a wild time is to have a good dinner and finish it off with 
a cigar. The brand of cigars that Carroll smokes is a cross between a Pittsburgh 
stogie and a roll of burlap but we don't hold that against him. 

As an athlete Stymie certainly is a good golfer. Sometimes he gets his 
golf and his bowling scores mixed but that doesn't phase him. He divides one 
by two and calls it his golf score and multiplies the other by two and he has his 
bowling total. 

Tennis, baseball and Jacquard Designing complete his athletic contribu- 
tions. In the classroom, Carroll can always be found one jump ahead of the 
instructors, waiting for them to catch up. His one big failing is loitering 
around Textile directories. 

Nevertheless, we know it is only a matter of time before 

MR. MOORE

will be seen on an office door and Carroll will be well on his way to success.

gentleman "Silence is Bliss." Like all other silent men, Ike's strongest point 
was never over-exertion. It is due to this fact that he is such a competent 
machinist. 

There were no problems that arose during Ruby's abbreviated stay with us 
that he could not solve. This is clearly shown in the remarkable ability he has 
shown by leading our Hockey, La Cross and Water Polo teams during the 
last two seasons. 

He is not only proficient in his studies but also in his wearing apparel. 
He has been well named the "Hound for Clothes." 

During his last school year this ambitious lad has been toiling evenings on 
'The Modern Tumbril," which, instead of dragging French aristocrats to their 
dooms, carries American Patriots to their evening festivities. 

Although our faith in Ruby has never been shattered, our minds, however, 
are now on edge. We sincerely hope that the proposed late fare increase was 
not in any way caused by our beloved classmate. Good Luck, Ruby!

Little is known of Davis; his home life, ambitions — all remain secret to 
us. He divulges little and talks less, truly a man of mystery. 

Toward the end of the year when the fine days are coming in we envy this 

youth who takes Friday afternoons off. How he gets this "drag" we don't 
know, but do we care — yes! 

It is rumored that Russ' father is a woolen superintendent and advised 
his son to take cotton as a course. Draw your own conclusions. 

Davis will probably go back to Connecticut upon completion of his course, 
and take away some super's position.

For such a big husky exponent of the West, he chose an exceptionally 
light vocation. "Chuck" is our leading knitting student and has been told to 
"tend to his knittin' " more times than we dare mention. 

"Granny" Fead has lately discovered that musicians are born, not made, 
so he has turned his banjo into a writing tablet. 

Chuck's delight is to formulate arguments and with the aid of his deep 
basso voice he usually wins by drowning out his opponents. 

After graduation he will probably take up a course in some other college 
and then turn back to Port Huron to work. 

Charlie has always been a leader in school activities and we expect great 
things of him.

"Spooks" is our class BABY, by the way, but he could easily have taught

HIS light-weight came to "Tech" with 
the ambition to study. He has succeeded beautifully, having taken every subject 
the school offers and trying to start a few more. Cotton Classing attracted Lee 
so much that he took the course twice, but balked the third time when it 
appeared on the curriculum of study. Enough is plenty even in such a delight- 
ful atmosphere. 

Some say lank, some say lean, some say tall. Nevertheless Lee remains 
the same six footer; seventy-two inches of manhood. He has been one of the 
most modest chaps in the school, never having been known to brag and always 
ready to help the unfortunates in C. Y. P. 

When it comes to dancing we doubt if any one can describe the interior of 
New Bedford dance halls the way our hero can. This leads us to believe that 
his choosen profession will be either C. Y. P. expert or proprietor of a dance 
hall. 

Whatever vocation Holmes chooses his frankness and congeniality will be 
stepping stones to success.

Quinn's athletic attempts have been very limited but he has always con-

In spite of his many absences, we are sure that James has learned sufficient 
to give him a good start in the mechanical or electrical field. Soon, we suppose, 
there will be a new firm of "QUINN AND GALLAGHER."

the Textile Directory, ascertaining how many spindles this mill has and how 
many looms that one did have. Mill statistics are 'Al's" strong point. 

His one drawback is his language with it's "How could you," "Mercy,

He claims there is no sense in weaving Leno when plain cloth with holes 
punched in it give the same effect. 

As a boxing instructor, Tubby has challenged most of the instructors to 
step a couple of rounds with him but they all seem to be backward in accepting. 

We believe that, if it wasn't for his sister, there would be no work kept 
up-to-date. 

Eli has been working as student janitor for two reasons, namely: — to be 
democratic and to keep well supplied with pencils. 

Eli's cheerful disposition and ability to grasp things readily are his chief 
assets to fame and fortune.

JUNIOR COURSE 

WITHIN the past two years a new course has been installed in the school 
for students who have not reached an age that enable them to become 
members of the regular student body. This course has the same instructors as 
the other course. A few minor subjects are added to lead up to the major ones. 
This year the above group finishes their two year preparatory course 
which consists of: 

Designing Mechanical Drawing 

Knitting Special Cloth Course 

Machine Shop Mechanics 

Weaving Industrial Mathematics 

Chemistry Cotton Sampling 

C. Y. P. Slashing and Warping 

After the junior has concluded this course and passed all subjects he receives 
a certificate. 

If he so desires he may return the following year and resume his subjects 
in the regular second year general course. Then at the end of two more years 
he may graduate with general students. 

This class being the first is very small but the incoming class of 1926 was 
larger. As the course becomes better known the enrollment will undoubtedly 
increase greatly.

M. DROZEK 
Ingraham School 

I V V ISSY" is the advance guard of the Polish 
Army. At last you might think so if you saw the lad in the "Tech" - Holy 
Family game, a homer and a three bagger. 

Baseball is only one of his achievements, a few of his others are soccer, 
basketball and track. 

He has the honor of being one of the first juniors in the school and by all 
appearances one of the first out. Drozek forsook High School in order to come 
to a more practical place. Now he leads his class in everything. 

Although quite a lot of worry to the instructors he promises to be a better 
boy next year when he returns for the second year of General Course. 

Mike has proved a source of supplies for ideas in this write-up of the 
Junior Course, and we might add that if we waited for all of them the book 
would never have been printed.

SAM LASSOW 

Knowlton School 

iVlAY we present Sam Lassow, who has 
completed his Junior Course, in a satisfactory manner, according to Mr. Acomb 
and the rest of the instructors. Sam graduated from the Knowlton Grammar 
School and after spending a few months at High School, decided to grasp his 
opportunity via of the Junior Course. His outdoor sport consists of driving 
his Chandler downtown to let the females gaze upon his handsome countenance. 
Always ready to show the latest in regards to clothes, he has set quite an 
example for the rest of the Juniors to follow. May we also add that Sam's 
father, who is a tailor, (explaining his fashion plate style) has placed him 
well, and may we some day see glittering electric lights, bearing the following: 
Lassow & Son, New Bedford's Greatest Tailors. 



AMERICO PIETAVINO 

Rodman School 



1 ATRIOTIC even to the name. So we 
present the third of the group of the Junior Course. Americo is the mathe- 
matician of the Juniors. His accuracy in figures was attained when he was but 
a mere child counting change — and bananas. Americo may be seen almost any 
morning riding his bicycle to school like the original "Pusha Madonna." He 
excels in all his studies and is quite popular with the boys who have met him. 

Americo's delight is soccer. Unfortunately we have had no soccer team 
with which he could kick away to his heart's content, but next year his fondest 
delight may be gratified, as there are rumors of a soccer team being formed. He 
has passed many hours upon the basketball court and is one of the players on 
the varsity baseball nine.

CLASS OF 1928 

IN the Fall of 1926, the class of June 1928 returned once again to "Textile's 
Halls of Learning" after a long summer vacation. 

Acquaintances were renewed and events of the summer talked over before 
we were conducted, as usual, to the office to relieve us of "surplus change." 
After a few lectures and warnings we were dismissed for the remainder of the 
day — only to return on the "morrow." 

Aside from studies the students turned their attention to "Frat" Initia- 
tions and dances. 

Our class were ably represented on the basketball court by Schofield, 
Francis Tripp, Brotherson and Fred Tripp. 'Ted" Carlson, one of our class, 
managed the Varsity successfully throughout its season. 

The Chemistry students were shifted from the "Big Lab" to the small one. 
Things were kind of dull for a while until Borden opened his Cafe to replace 
"Burt and Murphy's." 

We lost three of our class before the end of the year. "Winnie'' MacKay, 
Kirschbaum and "Red" Lawrence left school to enter business. 

The Chemistry Class were introduced to the C Y. P. and Weaving 
Departments and "Sully" at once decided to become a cotton classer.

The windows of the "Lab" were left screwed down due to the opening of 
Gray's Confectionery Store and Borden's Cafe. Looks pretty tough for Rock's 
Variety Store. 

In the middle of the term the Class was introduced to a new member of 
our Faculty, namely Mr. Weymouth, Assistant Instructor of Chemistry. 

CAN YOU IMAGINE— 

"Joe" Norris "making a woman!" 

"Ted" Carlson being bashful! 

Borden losing his appetite! 

Radway hurrying! 

"Ed" Waring staying after school! 

Sullivan being lazy! 

Adelsohn losing his voice! 

The basketball team not stopping for a "feed?" 

After two happy years together, we returned once more next fall to spend 
our final year at "Tech." May the final year be as eventful and pleasant as 
the past two!

CLASS OF 1929 

ON Sept. 13, the history of the New Bedford Textile School really began; 
that is. in the eyes of the class of 1929. On that date a goodly number 
of wild eyed freshmen descended with noisy shouts on Tech's ivy clad halls. A 
few talked with new made friends while others explored the school or were 
content to roam amid the winding paths of the campus. 

The boys soon learned the different pronunciation of textile terms and 
revised English, that squares on design paper in Mr. Holt's class were not made 
for tick-tack-toe, that Mechanics is "nothing more or less" than Physics, and 
that few excuses are ever accepted. 

During the fraternity rush season the boys led the "life of Riley," there 
being plenty of smokes and food, all gratis. But all that glitters is not gold, 
for after accepting bids they found themselves in bond of slavery. Now, no 
longer masters of themselves they served, sir'd, and stirred at the commands of 
others. The ones who survived initiations are here to say that bruised bodies 
and sleepy heads are not conducive to success in Mechanics exams. 

Considering the number of freshmen that enrolled at the beginning of the 
first semester, the class stuck together very well. Out of 25 that were received 
only a few dropped out. The first to leave was Bob Greene, who was apparent- 



«c 48 te— 



1927 - - THE FABRICATOR 



ly tired of studies and disappeared without warning. We have heard he has 
joined the Marines. 

During the Christmas vacation Mclntyre evidently found the balmy 
weather of Alabama too inviting to leave so another diplomat was lost to 
N. B. T. S. Also at this time Sauta must have been in a delirious mood when 
he left cravats to the chemistry instructors. 

Midyears descended and overwhelmed the unsuspecting freshmen but after 
these spasms they were a sadder but wiser group. But now they know that; 
it does take more than a few minutes to ink in those little squares, the dobby is 
not a horse, there is no such thing as 100% in C. Y. P., that cotton mules 
won't kick, cords are not to be played with, a harness draft will not incite a 
cold, and H;> S 4 is not a mouth wash. 

Adams is still wondering whether the shaft is on the gear or the gear is 
on the shaft and what the twist multiplier on a picker is — ask Mr. Taft. 

Pierce is encroaching upon instructor Brickley's formulae. Perhaps he 
thinks he can invent a new dye. 

We wonder what fish think about and if Meagher has discovered what 
little arrows are used for — and by the way, Meagher can dig-um-up and they're 
not dead ones either. Dan Sullivan has had a tough time all winter with his 
subjects. He is recuperating and we are glad to say Dan is a little Beta. 

Davis finds that with Friday afternoons off his health is beginning to 
improve. Conversation between Davis and Mr. Taft: 

Davis: "Good morning, Mr. Taft." 
Mr. Taft: "Good afternoon, Davis.'' 

Davis: "Afternoon? Why I just came in, I missed the bus from 
Providence." 

Mr. Taft: "Yes, yes. The same old stuff, I wish somebody would think 
up something original. 

Yu Ming is sorry to hear of the recent disturbance in his hometown, 
Shanghai. He says that he will have to stop sending his laundry home until 
the trouble blows over. Yu knows quite a bit of our language now. He even 
knows who Webster is although he uses a Chinese dictionary. 

Ed Farrow believes New Bedford girls are missing something by not attend- 
ing N. B. T. S. while he is there, also that Mr. Crompton does not need an 
ear trumpet. 

We are sorry to hear that Gregory Meagher is to undergo an operation 
for appendicitis late in April. 

The first year general class were shown the ins and outs of reed manufact- 
uring at the Knowles Loom Reed Works. Mr. Knowles himself acting as 
escort. They agreed that Mr. Knowles is a prince. 

Only a few months to go, and everybody is working to beat — the high 
cost of living. June will soon be here and for that reason the beauty of spring 
is passing unnoticed by the lads who are studying so concientiously. Soon 
goodbyes will be said, grips packed, and the boys will be off for the summer.

BASKETBALL 

COACH BRICKLEY'S call was responded to by about twenty candidates, 
among these were five varsity men from the 1926 team, namely: — Capt. 
Bruce, Schofield, Fred and Francis Tripp, and Levovsky. 

After a few weeks practice the squad was cut to nine men. 

The first game played was with the crack Rhode Island State Quintet. 
While we were outscored and outplayed, we scored more points than Yale did 
against R. S. 

The team then journeyed to M. T. T. at Boston and were again defeated 
by a superior five. 

At this time the team suffered a great loss when Coach Brickley was 
obliged to resign because of ill health. We were fortunate indeed in procuring 
the services of Mr. Milton Schofield who is the well known center of the New 
Bedford Professionals. 

The boys went over the road to play the United States Coast Guard Acad- 
emy at Hartford. This was undoubtedly the best game of the season and was 
lost by only three points. The squad will never forget the courtesies shown 
them and the hospitality of the Cadets. 

Our next game was with Dean Academy, Prep. School Champions whom 
we defeated by a good score. 

We broke even with our old rivals, Durfee Textile, each "copping" a 
game. 

The game at Lowell Textile was snatched from us in the last few minutes 
of play. 

The last game of the season was with Rhode Island School of Design. 
They used many football tactics. 

Our boys put up a sterling game throughout the season and finished the 
season in a blaze of glory. 

Capt. Bruce led the team well at all times and instilled a wonderful 
fighting spirit in the team. George Schofield, Captain-elect, played a strong 
game at guard. The "Heavenly Twins," Fred and Francis Tripp, had the 
opposing players baffled as to which was making the baskets and which the 
fouls. George Levovsky, George Rawcliffe and Curt Brotherson were bul- 
warks of defense and scored their share of the baskets. Much must be said 
of the work of our manager, Ted Carlson, whose untiring efforts throughout 
the season resulted in a smooth running schedule. 

The school as a whole wish to thank Coach Schofield for his services 
which were so kindly given. They are appreciated more than words can 
express.

BASEBALL 

WITH but 3 varsity men to form nucleus of the 1927 baseball team it 
seems that just a "Fair" season may be predicted. At the time of 
this writing they have suffered an unexpected defeat at the hands of Holy 
Family High. "Lack of practice" was the cause, and it may be well to know 
the fact, though offering no alibi, that we have but little time to practice as 
we get out of school at 4.30 P. M. 

With the graduation of Mullarkey, Rooney, Carlow, White, Mills, 
Hathaway and McCraw, all seasoned men before entering Textile it will be 
quite a task to fill these berths. "Chick" Wareing our famous left fielder of 
the '25 and '26 season is back again ready to do or die, and he sure can do. 
Ed Waring will also be with us and will stand with Levovsky in regards to 
showing the twirling. Ed will go great this year as he is a little heavier and 
taller. "Curt" Brotherson our quiet boy of whom there is quite a bit rumored, 
is going to cover shortstop once more, and no doubt will turn in a creditable 
showing, as he did last season. Ex-captain Searles and "Chuck" Fead have 
decided to withdraw from the limelight and be just plain hard working students. 
This decision of Searles and Fead was quite a blow to the boys but studies are 
studies and baseball is baseball. 

There are members of the freshmen class who boast of some High School 
experience. Such men of Ed Lincoln, "Ad" Twordowski, Roger Turgeon, Ed 
Farrow, Jim Adams, "Dan" Sullivan and Young Drosek are sure going to help 
some. Ed Lincoln, Julius Soler and "Dan" Sullivan are to fill the catching 
berths and there is no doubt in the writer's mind but what the position will 

Hg( 54 )|h 



19 2 7 



THE FABRICATOR 



be well filled. If any of these three young men can fill the position as good 
as "Red" Mullarky who is now an alumnus, the coach will and should be very 
well satisfied. 

With but two pitchers on which to depend, although George Levovsky 
has had considerable in his past two years and Waring's scholastic and twilight 
seasoning will certainly help some, it is a gamble whether he can outwit an 
extra heavy hitting team of which our present schedule may run into. 

First Base will be covered by Ed Farrow or "Yimmie" Adams. Second 
Base will have Twordowski stopping balls in its territory, and McDonald as 
a utility if an accident should occur to Twordowski, while "Curt" Brotherson 
and Anderson will play short. Drosek's three bagger and homer in the Holy 
Family game has made his position as regular third baseman quite secure. Ted 
Carlson and Manager Schofield will be used as utility men. 

The outfield consists of "Chick" Waring, "Fran" Tripp, Allan Blackmer 
and Turgeon. This gives us a squad of 1 8 men who are ready to step in and 
take a man who would have a bad day or accident or injury. 

This club only takes in a man who during the year has by some real 
ability shown the makings of a ball player. Last year's team consisted of some 
good men and their accomplishments are worthy of space in this article. 

Mullarkey knocked the ball through the Providence College fence with 3 
men on, also Sam White who knocked the ball into a farmyard at Hyannis, and 
our present captain, George Lavovsky who circled the bases by clouting a homer 
at Buttonwood against Holy Family. The boys can recall some pretty good 
times on the trips, especially when some of the boys had dates in Boston and 
some at home here with but one bus. 

Volumes could be filled with more of these minor jokes that the boys 
played on each other. There is much praise due to Manager Schofield and 
Assistant Manager Borden for the manner in which they have executed their 
duties. Schofield has done real well by collecting the following schedule for us.

Although many more invitations from Colleges and Preparatory Schools 
were received we were allowed but 10 games, and with our team as mentioned 
above, all we can say is we wish you luck, boys, with the rest of the games.

TENNIS 

r I HE tennis team is now practicing daily in the gymnasium in preparation 
■*■ for the spring matches. The school, having lost all of their letter men 
through graduation, will have to build up an entirely new team. In looking 
over the candidates' some of the most promising are Snell, Moore, Bruce, Sulli- 
van, Macia and Searls. 

All of the home matches this year will be played at Buttonwood Park. 
Last year's team made an enviable record which the boys of this year will 
have to "step" to equal. 

The schedule as prepared my Manager Fred Tripp is not complete.

DELTA KAPPA PHI FRATERNITY 

MONDAY, September 8, Delta Kappa men trudged northward up Purchase 
Street, back to the institution they had left earlier in the summer. They 
renewed old acquaintances, talked over the summer vacations and met future 
members. Then they went into the office and enrolled and took the rest of the 
day off. 

Next day we were back at the old grind. We lost twenty members by grad- 
uation and at once looked about to see if there were any around to follow in 
Claude Davis's footsteps or to reestablish the "Lab Cafeteria" that had been 
run so nobly by the "Terrible Two" (Murphy and Burt.) 

Delta Kappa members held many meetings during the fall and went on 
several theatre parties. 

Our first social endeavor was to put over a good dance, one that would 
be enjoyed by everyone. We lived up to our expectations and enjoyed such a 
treat in Duff's Hall, January 10th. Early in the fall a private party was 
held at Long Pond and was considered a decided success. Borden furnished 
us with all the eats (Yes — Borden) we could put down and "Red" Lawrence 
took a week's pay from Jack Skinkle. 

We had three members on the Varsity basketball five and our fraternity 
team of "Chuck" Fead, Francis Tripp, Bill Bruce, "Casey" Searls and Fred 
Tripp defeated the Phi Psi Fraternity for the championship by a score of 26 to 
16. We shall probably have Ed Waring, "Chuck" Fead, Blackmer, "Casey" 
Searls and Francis Tripp on this year's baseball nine. 

We took in eight new members at the mid year in February, namely:- — 
Norris, Pilkington, Quinn, Kenneth Tripp, Mollins, Turgeon, Morton and 
Rodalcewiz. Their initiation was a decided success, as Turgeon could not sit 
down for a week and it was even longed before "Joe" Norris got all the ketchup 
off his leg. 

The members are planning another farewell party this spring, like last 
year's, one of the kind that we will never forget.

PHI PSI FRATERNITY 

The first day of school was the occasion for much Fraternal hand pumpings 
and so forth. Mostly so forth when the bills started to mount up. 

The fair Freshmen had hardly opened their innocent eyes before they 
were rushed all over the lot by zealous Phi Psi men who hurried to show the 
new men the splendors of night life* at Coco-Bola and Lincoln Park. In fact 
the Freshmen received more lectures on how to "Cherchez-la femme" in New 
Bedford than how to put on the cap and gown swiftly. 

Our Banquette and Smoker was a big success with all the Faculty members 
and Grand Officers present. It was noticed that some of the boys didn't have 
to buy smokes for weeks after cleaning up all the "Buts" in sight at the Ban- 
quette. Take some good advise Phi Psi men try and sit near Mr. Holt when 
Smokes are passed around as he doesn't smoke and neither does he carry them 
off to a sick brother. 

Scarcely had the last ciggaret left from the Smoker been used up when we 
held Open House. Again the boys stocked up and attended to the inner man 
in a right smart manner. 

When our Pledges paraded to school on the first day of their probation they 
certainly knocked New Bedford silly. Eleven came sauntering down the 
street with Black Skull Caps with a Gold button. They were so good that 
they got their pictures in the papers. Lucky the photographer didn't come 
around a couple of weeks later as Clif Pierce looked like Santa Claus with the 
beard he had grown. 






1927 - - THE FABRICATOR 



All New Bedford watched the open initiation. Adams knows all about 
the mashers who try and pick up innocent girls. He made such a darn nice girl 
that the boys were sorry that his name wasn't Ophelia or Hepzabah. Imagine 
how the poor Drug Store Cow Boys felt when after they had asked Jim to step 

out with them to be told in no feminine voice "Get to out of here or I'll 

hang one on your chin." 

Sloane's liniment. Blister cures, and Pillows were at a premium after the 
Big Night when Holmes played coachman for half the fraternity. Whoa, Ches- 
ter. The candidates received the shock of their lives when they found out how 
really hot that quiet Loud boy could make them. Tommy liked to hear noises 
and made many candidates "weary and sick unto death." If wishes could come 
true Carroll would have had two paralyzed arms, (the candidates wishes). 

By the time that the boys were full fledged Phi Psis the house of David 
were mere children in comparison. More than one pledge swore he was afraid 
to go by a Barber's after dark. 

Our Dance turned out to be a Social and financial success. 

The Christmas party was a Wow and it was learned for the first time that 
Beta had a second Ingersoll in Meagher. At the skating party previous a un- 
godly licking was taken by Loud and Carlson. Witness the fact that after 
that 00-3'&$" party Macia had to help Carlson undress. 

After mid-years we pledged seven more new men who donned the "cute" 
little caps and bade their barbars a fond farewell. Again the boys smoke when 
they want to, not when they can afford it! 

We are sorry to say that we lost Win McKay one of our best boys, who left 
school at the end of the first semester. He'll be back next term we hope. 

Phi Psi will only lost seven men by graduation but they are all real fra- 
ternity brothers in every sense of the v/ord and Beta is sorry to lose them and 
wishes them the best of luck in their work. 

The twenty-fourth annual convention of Phi Psi will be held in New 
Bedford on April 22-23-24. Judging by the plans and preparations this will 
be the biggest time ever put over by any Chapter of Phi Psi.

SIGMA PHI TAU FRATERNITY 

THE Beta Chapter of the Sigma Phi Tau Fraternity was established at the 
New Bedford Textile School in 19 22. Together with the Gamma 
Chapter of the Bradford Durfee Textile School of Fall River, joint meetings and 
social affairs were held, and during the last year numerous "Big-Time" events 
were run off in a very successful manner, especially a private dance given by both 
chapters in Fall River. Alumni were present from New York, Boston, Phila- 
delphia, New Bedford, Providence and Fall River. 

The convention this year was held the week end of April 8th, 9th and 
10th, in Philadelphia. The affair was started by a dance at the Locust Club, 
Friday night, followed by a theatre party on Saturday afternoon. Saturday 
evening a banquet and good wellfare meeting were held at the Ritz-Carlton 
Hotel. Another private dance was held Sunday afternoon and the convention 
ended with pleasant memories of one of the finest conventions in the history 
of the Sigma Phi Tau Fraternity.

ALUMNI ASSOCIATION 

TO the members of the graduating class. We extend to you the very sincere 
wishes of the Alumni Association of the School Worth While. 
We hope that you will be fortunate in securing a position in some of the 
varied fields of textiles, and successful in becoming a master mind in your 
chosen career. 

You will soon cease to be a student of the New Bedford Textile School, 
and become an Alumnus of the School Worth While. As a graduate of the 
New Bedford Textile School great things will be expected of you, and it will 
be your duty to show to the textile world that you can maintain the high 
standard that has been set by former graduates of your school. 

No matter what part of the world you may go to it is quite possible for 
you to meet some of your old school graduates, for students have come from 
and gone to all parts of the world, and it is hard to find a textile center in any 
part of the globe that has not got a representative of the New Bedford Textile 
School. 

The Alumni Association should be represented by you. It should never 
be forgotten by you. You should make it your duty to see that every student 
who has graduated becomes, and what is more important, remains a member 
of your association. 

With every graduate a live member we could forge a chain that would 
encircle the globe. We all need each others help and this association could be 
made the common meeting ground of all; the exchange and mart of all ideas 
for progress and efficiency. 

Will you as a member of this graduating class help us to get a membership 
of 100%. The fee is low, only $1.00 per year, the aims are high. If 
we could be sure of the support of every one who has been a graduate of our 
school we feel sure we could be of great service to each other. 

If you sent your fee to the school every year in the month of June, the 
Red Letter Day of the beginning of vour career, it would be appreciated and 
it would help to form a fund that would enable your committee to arrange times 
and places where we could all meet together to renew old acquaintances, and 
what is more meet new friends whom we ought to know. 

We would like to have a Reunion of all our graduates every year in the 
month cf June, the Saturday before the Graduating Exercises so that the 
graduating class members could get in touch with the older graduates who are 
holding good positions, and by meeting them and making their acquaintance, 
get the courage and help they need to start them on their journey in life. 

The Alumni Association has never been very active because it has been 
left to a few. This should not be so, it belongs to every graduate and if it can 
get your moral and financial support it can become one of the greatest factors 
for success in your school and the textile world.

The Alumni Association need you to take a share in its work. You need 
it to help you in your work. There is work for every member of this associa- 
tion. Nothing that is worth while succeeds without work. A few of the 
older graduates of the school have held the association together, and have never 
let the alumni die out. They are trying to make it a bigger and better Alumni, 
but cannot do it alone and they know it. They want your co-operation and 
advice in the work of building up this great chain of graduates that stretch from 
one side of the universe to the other. 

You know that, "In Unity there is Strength." The school has done all 
in its power to help you and will continue to do so. We ask you as a small 
return to help us build up this, your Alumni Association, so that when we 
meet together you will feel that this Association is some of your work, and 
that you are proud of it. 

In conclusion we hope when after a few years and you have reached a 
position where you will require good men, and true, you will keep in touch 
with your Alma Mater. That you will always be willing and anxious to help 
either a younger graduate or a fellow member of the Alumni Association of the 
School Worth While who has not been so fortunate as you.

SOCIAL ACTIVITIES 



IN all colleges and in universities the activities of the student life play a leading 
part. There are two sides to all college life, the scholastic and social. It is 
with deep feeling of praise and gratitude for the co-operation of the under- 
graduates, that we present for you to picture a story of our Social Life of 
1926-27. 

Nov. 15. The flash of colored lights, of a shining waxed floor, these are 
ever to be the memories of the first Senior Class Dance of '27. The first 
annual observance under the direction of Chairman Thomas MacDonald assisted 
by Theodore Waring, Francis Quinn, James Gallagher and George Levovsky 
was a great success both socially and financially. Gate crashers would rather 
have tried the First National, than try to get by the above committee. 

Dec. 23-Jan. 3. Vacation: The departure for home, with new suits, 
with stiff collars and writing paper which were never used. Back again to 
school, demanding another week to rest up. 

Jan. 12. Delta Kappa Phi Dance. The success of this affair was due to 
the untiring efforts of the Tripp twins, Elliot Borden and Allan Blackmer, who 
brought Harold Williams and his orchestra to Duff's Large Hall for the merriest 
time of the year. We shall remember it always as an evening of laughter, music 
and good fellowship. 

Jan. 28. Election to the Student Council. Some of the replies received 
during this election, to some of the serious questions would do Will Rogers 
credit. After one hour and twenty minutes of argumentation a Council was 
elected to the satisfaction of every one concerned. 

Feb. 15. Phi Si Dance. Again we saw dim lights, flashy gowns, soft 
music, syncopated jazz that beat with the very life of the dance. Nothing more 
nothing less, a good time was had by all. 

March 28-April 4. Spring vacation. More good times. Back to school 
with a firm determination to do some hard studying to pass the final exams 
with flying colors. 

Now for the sad story. A secret committee of the Senior Class have voted 
upon the following, hoping the gentlemen concerned will take no offense, but 
in good fellowship as they have taken the jokes in the past.

Fattest. Tom Boomer, who won the leather covered Blackstone, gave 
Elliot Snell a bitter fight for the fattest and won by a neck. 

Tightest. This was the one of the most bitterly contested in the History 
of Textile. Gallagher was given a thrilling contest by Quinn and Haskins. 
Fead started in the race, but someone dropped a penny and he withdrew to pick 
the copper up. Gallagher was pushed on the home stretch as Quinn tried to 
elbow by, but the news that Gallagher had sent a night letter during the eclipse 
gave him the title. Haskins was forced in the corner by Quinn and took third 
place. 

Cutest. "Chick" Waring, Padanaram's very own was awarded the popular 
title after Ruberstein's campaign money had run out and his voters deserted him 
at the last minute. 

Best Student. "Bill" Bruce won the undisputed title in this class, by his 
genius and matter. He wasn't even pressed by the rest of the mob. 

Best Athlete. George Lavoskey was accorded this honor, having played 
Varsity Basketball and winning the captaincy of Ball Team for this season. 

Best Dancer. Tom McDonald won the silver loving cup by cutting the 
tape a full yard ahead of "Dinty" Moore. 

Parlor Sheik. After a deadlock of 15 minutes "Casey" Searles over 
"Chuck" Fead and won the title of "Porlor King." 

Wittiest. "Dinty" Moore won in a walk. His stories and wise cracks 
made him famous even with Mr. Acomb who never got the point on the first 
recital. 

Best Natured. Davis with his smile and tenor voice romped off to an easy 
win in this contest. 

Handsomest. There was a big fight for this honor and "Chuck" Fead 
honestly won from Lee Holmes as the best looking sheik in the class. 

Favorite Sport. "Crashing the gate" was one of the leaders. "Dancing in 
crowded Ball Rooms" was another. "Saving milk bottles" received quite a few 
votes. 

Why did you come to New Bedford? This was a heart-breaker. Some 
one said the cops closed in on him, another collegiate said he didn't know any 
better.

ROMANCE AND ADS 



The average magazine story these 
days starts off with a half a dozen 
paragraphs draped around an illus- 
tration, then jumps with a spurt into 
the advertising sections, where it 
trickles along between canned milk 
and floor wax. 

Dozing over a short story the 
other evening, while it cavorted dev- 
iously through the advertising pages, 
we arrived at the following bissare 
combination. 

The path wound in and out 
through the meadow, not far distant 
.... from contented cows. On 
a fence rail near by a bobwhitc 
perched and sang .... your drug- 
gist carries it. 

The summer day was ideal .... 
for sprains and stiff joints: the rays 
of the descending sun bathed the 
landscape .... fresh every hour. 
Halfway down the path they came 
to a shady nook .... recom- 
mended by generations of users. 

She was conscious of his manly 
form .... built of white pine and 
reinforced at the corners. Her com- 
panion was, she thought to herself, a 
veritable prince .... one of the 
fifty-seven varieties. As for him, he 
could not take his adoring eyes off 
her .... the world's most perfect 
talking machine. He felt an irresis- 
table impulse to tell her how much 
he loved her .... combining the 
purest ingredients. He longed to 
pour out his passion and .... 
sweeten it with Domino. He stroked 



her hair .... so different from the 
ordinary macaroni, where she nestled 
close to his side ready to .... re- 
fuse substitutes. "Dearest," he mur- 
mured at last .... looking like 
new. "Dearest, this is the moment 
I have longed for .... because of 
its pleasing flavor." 

She did not answer at once. Her 
thoughts seemed far away .... at 
the nearest grocery. He took her 
hand in his, and held her close . . . 
allowing the skin to breathe, "Will 
you be mine?" he questioned in a 
tone .... recommended by boards 
of health everywhere. 

"You want me for your wife?" 
she asked, her voice .... low and 
comfortable. "Yes," he nodded, 
swallowing hard beneath his collar 
which .... hasn't scratched yet. 
"Then before I accept," she went on, 
"don't you think you'd better .... 
ask the man who owns one?" "If 
you mean your father," the young 
man answered, "I'm sure he'll give 
his consent. Just name the day, and 
I'll .... keep the contents hot for 
twenty-four hours." 

He folded her in his arms, and his 
kisses were .... supplied direct 
from the factory. "Sweetheart, say 
that you'll be mine," he repeated, 
"Very well, dear" she whispered, 
"I'll .... try it for thirty days," 
whereupon he kissed her again and 
again .... showing many differ- 
ent styles and patterns.

CHEMISTRY FOR THE SIMPLE 
MINDED SOLUTION 

Mr. and Mrs. Molecule of this city- 
have just received word from their 
daughter Mrs. Atom, of the birth to 
the Atoms, of twins of equal weight 
and volume, one named Positive, the 
other Negative. 

Their father claims that they will 
be heavy charges when they are older. 
Mrs. Molecule was quite broken up 
over the matter, as she fears her 
grandsons will paint the litmus red 
when they grow up. 

Both of the twins are already in 
love, little Positive being strongly at- 
tached to Miss Ann Ode. Young 
Negative has a great affinity for Miss 
Cath Ode. Both young ladies are 
Poles. 

Mrs. Atom considers this a base 
action. Although she is bringing 
great pressure to bear against Mr. 
Atom, he is maintaining equilibrium. 
The twins are neutral. 



Fresh Guy: "Say, Bill, when day 
breaks, where do the pieces go?" 

"What would you do if you were

"Get'em shined. That's what I'd

"It's all over school." 
"What?" 
'The roof, my child, the roof."

Does the fact that a cord has flats 
make it musical? See Snell. 

How many tobacco chewers equal 
one humidifier? See Messrs. Loud 
and Boomer. 

Who made the first one tooth 
gear? See Taft. 

If automatic stokers are installed, 
can the shovel and slice bar be sold? 
See Rubenstein. 

Is our Corliss engine used for heat- 
ing purposes only? Also by Ruben- 
stein. 

What are volts per square inches? 
Boomer again. 

If New Bedford had 3,416 more 
residents, what would it be? See 
Moore. 

What was the greatest tea party 
ever held in Boston? 

If you drop a nickel in a slot 
machine and get neither gum nor 
money back, what will you say? 

The answers to these will be found 
in our 1928 edition of The Fabrica- 
tor or by interviewing the foremen- 
tioned students.

ON THE SUBJECT OF ADVERTISING 
AND WHAT IT MEANS TO THE 

ANNUAL 



WE who have enjoyed the 1927 FABRICA- 
TOR are greatly indebted to the business 
men who so generously contributed to our advertising 
section. 

We believe that their contribution to our book was 
prompted first by their belief in the value of advertis- 
ing, and second by their interest in the success of our 
Annual. 

Therefore it is only right that we should help those 
who help us. When we have any business to give, 
let us consider first those who made it possible for us 
to publish a successful 1927 FABRICATOR.

The Solution of Every Windinq Problem 



TWO essentials to success in any business are a clearly de- 
fined target and an unwavering aim. A third of a century 
ago the Universal Winding Company established for itself, 
as a goal or target, "the solution of every winding problem." 
Since then this Company has built over 2,000,000 winding 
spindles and marketed over fifty different kinds of winding 
machines. Many of the originals are still the only outstandingly 
successful mechanisms of their kind on the market. 

This Company is at present the largest organization in the 
world making winding machines exclusively. Supremacy in 
size is the logical result of supremacy in demand. Supremacy 
in demand follows leadership in conception, execution, materials 
and service. 

Whatever your winding problem is, state the facts and this 
Company can offer the solution. Ask a Leesona sales engineer 
to call, study your requirements and make recommendations. 
Your request will not obligate you.

NON-MO OIL 



NON-FLUID OIL is a specialty lubri- 
cant made -emarkably adhesive by our 
exclusive process. 

It is so adhesive that it stays in bear- 
ings, does not drip or spatter, reducing 
power loss from excess friction and guard- 
ing against interruptions in production 
caused by replacing of worn or burnt out 
bearings. 




In the bearing is off the product — the use 
of NON-FLUID OIL avoids oil-spotted 
goods which have a lower market value, as 
seconds. 

NON-FLUID OIL costs less per year for 
better lubrication.

In purchasing Cones and Tubes it is above all things necessary to get what

what condition he wants, the 
problem becomes 




OUR, 
ENGINEER/ 




Not a salesman's promise, but 
a matter of fact ; of how much 
evaporated water is necessary. 
If it is not thought desirable 
to accept our data, the custo- 
mer's engineer can figure this 
out. 




The value of a humidifying 
equipment lies in its proven 
(I said proven) ability to 
evaporate a definite amount of 
water as, when and if wanted. 



We not only guarantee to evaporate this 
pre-determined definite amount of water but no 
contract of ours is complete until it is proven 
to the satisfaction of the customer.
